Do I have too many issues for counseling?

I have so many issues to address. I have a history of sexual abuse, I’m a breast cancer survivor and I am a lifetime insomniac.

I have a long history of depression and I’m beginning to have anxiety. I have low self esteem but I’ve been happily married for almost 35 years.

I’ve never had counseling about any of this. Do I have too many issues to address in counseling?

No, you don't have too many issues for counseling; that's what counseling is here for! Now, you may need multiple therapeutic supports, unless you find a counselor who specializes in all of the concerns you have. Often, mental health treatment is a collaborative effort. So for example, you might visit a sleep doctor for testing, a psychiatrist for sleep medications and antidepressants, a support group for breast cancer survivors, and a counselor for depression, anxiety, and trauma.
